2011 fsa vision trimax t42 wheelset   2011 FSA Vision Trimax T42 Wheelset

Neat, tight, and easy-handling, the Vision Trimax T42 Wheelset consists of semi-aero mid-section wheels from FSA for 2011. While the 42mm section rim does not cut up the wind and deeper sets, it is less prone to be blustered in windier conditions.

While it weighs 1.7kg/pr, which is average, these wheels climb better than deeper wheels do and they also light up effortlessly under power. This is because there is less in the rims. Very tight and precise overall feel and consistent braking are achieved through the hand-built straight-pull bladed spoke build.

When it comes to bike suitability, course profile, and wind conditions, the 2011 FSA Vision Trimax T42 Wheelset has better versatility as compared to most deeper section wheels. Other excellent features are long-term smoothness, high quality quick-release, and tire covers.

Head angles can be effortlessly controlled by using Burgtec Titanium Offset Shock Hardware to shorten or lengthen the very useful shock eyelets. When Marc Beaumont won at Val Di Sole 2010 World Cup, he admitted that this offset shock hardware contributed to his victory.

Depending on the shock bolt size of the frame, the angle alteration allowed by the Burgtec hardware ranges from 1 to 1.5 degrees. Obviously, 6mm frames will have the highest amount of alteration while the 8mm frames will get the least.

Made from grade 5 Titanium, the hardware weighs considerably lighter than the steel hardware ones but still maintains equally outstanding wear ratings like that of the OE Aluminum ones. To keep out as much element as possible, a proprietary o-ring seal is included in the hardware.
